Butch & family,
We were so sorry to learn of Bernice's passing. Your mother was one of the hardest working women I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. It was so great when she moved to Madison and was again a neighbor of mama & daddy. She always loved to see our kids, Donnie & Adam, even after they were grown. We got to see both Bernice & Hazel and it was always fun!!

I know it is never easy to lose a parent but we all know she is pain free and happy to see everyone in Heaven!
Kind regards, Steve, Belinda, Donnie & Adam Wunderlich
